know what i love? (not)  
trying to fall asleep and the thought suddenly occurs to you: when i die all the things that bring me happiness will go in the trash.

eta: sorry this was just something i had to post to get it out of my head. ignore me.

Hey Kaz, actually I think what will happen is that all those happy things will suddenly have meaning and value. It's always that way AFTER the person is gone. Usually it's the silliest thing. Take some comfort from that. I think I know how you feel.

Yeah, I know some of the things will be. Anything fannish will go in the garbage dumpster because they think it's stupid to collect things for television shows or actors. I know my family too well. I appreciate saying that though.

It was just a fucking weird thought that got in my head and I had to get it out or else it'd be bouncing around and trying to get out of control.

i should have looked at the pretty much sooner. i don't know why that had to get in my head just to me cry at that moment. sometimes if i post thoughts like this they go the fuck away.

*hugs you* My stuff will probably be packed away into boxes and put in storage, 'cause Mom's a packrat that way, but she won't love what I loved.

Well...SG brings you happiness, right? All the stories and vids and episodes and movies, they'll be hanging around a while. Same goes for Farscape and all the beautiful people involved.

The stuff in your immediate possession has a more uncertain fate. But, maybe you could make it something of a wacky road trip to take all your stuff and give it to your friends far and wide before the time comes?

*hug* Just some stuff to think about.

kid, it's your happines and no-one elses. when you are off being happy somewhere else, the stuff will have fulfilled it's function. It's intrinsic value is YOU, and how you react to it...

...draft a will. They're legally required to honor it. Even if you just write it up on a peice of paper, it's still legally binding if you sign it in front of a witness.

That way you get to decide where things go - not them - and if you want to leave Ben Browder your favourite lingerie, then BY GOD, you can DO IT!!

I'd also reccomend naming en exceutor - someone you trust, especially with fannish things - ergo not your family.

I agree Kaz. Name an Executor for your will. My best friend is mine. I KNOW she'll do what I want. I don't want much, but I know my family will ignore that and do what they want. I have specific people in mind to get my fan stuff. I've told April that some of this stuff is expensive. Like the vest Michael Shanks wore in the 200th episode when he was playing Crichton.... heehee

Life's just one thing after another, isn't it?

(I think about that very thing all too often. It's stuff, and yet...)

Dude, that's so depressing.

It makes me wonder what will happen to all of Fizvo's stuff after I pass on. I'll keep it for him after he goes, but then after I go. . .

I guess some of it could be donated to a sci fi museum along with my stuff - we'd like that.

The same could happen with your stuff. By the time you pass, some of your stuff will likely be rare collector's items.

I would say that if you're worried about what your family might do with it, make sure you have some kind of a will and get the stuff into trusted friends hands who will take proper care of it when you pass (donate it, etc). You'll meet people over the years at cons, etc. who will value your stuff.
